My lord what is up with the power use when overclocking? I could see some but this is just insane.

Also
For any load greater than 230 Watts we were told by ASUS that we should provide some active cooling to the boards VRM heatsink.

So even for the stock settings you should have active cooling? Cinebench got 268 watts in multi-core. Maybe they should have included active cooling on these boards if they are required for even stock cpu's!
